• 1000 ml cola (not diet)
  • 500 ml ketchup
  • 350ml Worcester sauce
  • 250 ml dark soya sauce
  • 500 ml chicken stock
  • 600 grm brown sugar
  • 400 ml honey
  • 3 cloves crushed garlic
  • 250 ml vinegar ( white, cider or red)
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tbl sp mustard (any)
  • 3 tbl sp tomato purée


  • STEP 1
    place all ingredients in a large heavy pan, i used my large flat bottomed wok, bring to the boil. remove the scum that forms and reduce the heat to a simmer.
  • STEP 2
    if wanted for a dip, reduce down until thick , if your doing it as a cooking sauce. just add to your slow cooker (for eg.) and cook along with your choice of meat, then when the meat is cooked remove it and sieve the sauce back into your large pan. reduce to a nice pouring thickness and pour over meat. then put in the oven on a med/high heat until dark and sticky.
  • STEP 3
    goes excellent with pork spare ribs in a slow cooker on high for 5 hours.
